Alderman, food truck dispute sparks protest
A Chicago alderman in a dispute about a Salvation Army food truck in his ward is now being targeted by protesters.
The Salvation Army claims 46th Ward Ald. James Cappleman asked the food truck to leave his ward in the Uptown neighborhood.
Cappleman says he only asked for evidence the service was working.
Now, 200 protesters say they will picket Cappleman’s ward office Wednesday night and had out free soup.
They’re also angry he awarded a permit allowing a farmer to capture pigeons in Uptown to take them to Indiana for sport shooters.
